Our room had an old style claw tub and the shower was an old style ring with a shower curtain that wrapped around you. Although very nostalgic, not practical. For such a luxurious hotel, in this day and age, the wifi was terrible. Beautiful hotel, beautiful grounds, and the staff are exceptional, but way too expensive for what you get.

Rooms, castle and gardens were beautiful. The breakfast was delightful wilt filled menu and continental foods of pastries, cereals, and more. Lovely setting and warm friendly staff. We are glad we stayed. Shower was a bit tight with the shower curtain and our bathroom window only had a sheer.

This is a truly beautiful hotel in a stunning location. It’s a castle so don’t expect all the latest mod-cons. The Restaurant is very good and the food is really top notch. Be warned there is only a ferry to access the hotel, no bridge so don’t arrive too late
